Description

Man BumpOur partnership with the HVDHB now enables us to give women, who have a Community Services Card in the Hutt Valley, the opportunity to attend our funded courses, for free. We are very grateful for this funding.

Although we need to priortise Community Service Card (CSC) holders, for this course, some paid-for-places will be available. If you are a CSC holder and are unable to book please contact admin@birthed.co.nz

Your Birth Essentials is an informative and fun course, which will provide you with ‘the Essentials’  – what you need to know, to be prepared for your labour and birth. This course will prepare you for giving birth and what to expect in those first weeks with your new baby.

Some of the topics covered over 5 weeks;

  • Nutrition, pregnancy safety and general health issues
  • What midwives and doctors do for you
  • The pregnant and birthing body
  • Labour overview and stages
  • Birth choices
  • Self-help during labour and birth
  • Pain management
  • Breastfeeding
  • After the birth
  • Parenting in the early days
  • Postnatal depression and taking care of you
  • Support and help services

We recommend you also book into a ‘Get Baby Ready’ course as this will give you valuable information about taking care of your baby. Check out our other ‘follow on’ courses – Homebirth, Breastfeeding Masterclass, Keeping Your Baby Safe and Out of the Blues

Your Birth Essentials is $147 for you and your support partner, or FREE to you and your support partner, if you have a Community Services Card and reside in the Hutt Valley.
